America's Cheapest Family isn't so Cheap

In my quest to become more frugal I have been scouring the web for more ideas on lowering my grocery bill.

Today I came across an article from ABC News about America's Cheapest Family, I am not a big news watcher so I hadn't even heard of these people. I found feeding a family of 6 on $350 a month very intriguing. Right now we spend $400 a month for 4 people. (I am working on this :)

So I follow a link to their site and low and behold, most everything I found on there costs! They do have a Freezine, but other than that there are price tags everywhere. The most helpful thing I found on the site was the Readers Tips, free suggestions from the readers.

I have to say I am a little disappointed, I have found better/free information on numerous blogs. If you have a grocery tip or a blog on saving money or frugality send me a comment.
